A summary of installing Gaia on the AWS

thanks @jwiley and @jude for helping me to solve some problem;

They are very done in Gaia and Blockstack;

Follow the document https://docs.blockstack.org/storage/amazon-s3-deploy.html

There are some issues to be aware of :

6. | 7.

when choise an instance Type; Please choose t2.small ;
Because t2.micro , The memory is too small too run the blockstack Gaia;

1 - confirm the port is open

nmap -Pn -p 22,80,443

[** @ zhous-MBP-2:*]~/Documents/Password$ nmap -Pn -p 22,80,443
Starting Nmap 7.80 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2019-08-16 03:03 CST
Nmap scan report for ec2-3-112-127-199.ap-northeast-1.compute.amazonaws.com(

Host is up (0.11s latency).

22/tcp open ssh
80/tcp closed http
443/tcp closed https
Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.17 seconds

It is not correct the the Port 80/tcp and 443/tcp closed

run the command to slove the problem

sudo systemctl start reset-ssl-certs.service
sudo sed -ie '39d' /gaia/docker/nginx/conf.d/nginx-ssl.conf
sudo reboot

It will take sometime to be available;

2 - Login the EC2

[ @ zhous-MBP-2: ] ~/Documents/Password $ ssh -t -i filehub.pem [email protected]
